Ms. Perez, Seventh Grade Homeroom
Language Arts & Literature (with Ms. Davenport and Mrs. Sawicki)
Seventh Grade Language Arts consists of four components: literature, writing, grammar and spelling. Seventh graders read, discuss and write about the following books: Where the Red Fern Grows, The Midwife’s Apprentice, A Wrinkle in Time, Farewell to Manzanar, The Outsiders and others if time allows.
Math (with Mr. Macloud)
Integers, rational numbers, expressions, equations/inequalities and graphing are the focus most of the year. Just like whole numbers, fractions and decimals are a building block for middle school math, these topics are a building block for Algebra 1. Geometry is also studied at depth in 7th grade so students will have a good base when they enter Geometry in high school.
Science (with Ms. Perez)
The Amplify Science 7th Grade Life Science Course introduces students to topics that support students in meeting the NGSS. Students will engage in three-dimensional learning to solve real-world questions and problems involving: metabolism, heredity, evolution, and ecosystems.
Social Studies (with Mrs. Sawicki)
We study the social, cultural, and technological changes that occurred in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America in the years 400 B.C. to A.D. 1789.
Religion (with Ms. Perez)
The focus this year is ministry to others. We will be discussing the topic of morality and how to live the Gospel values in our lives. 7th graders may prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Spanish (with Señor Ligotti)
Students continue to learn Spanish with focus on basic conversation, hobbies, school schedules, time, invitations, and food.
